Chuck Grassley (who's also the Republican chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee) announced yesterday they plan to question Manafort, noting the committee will issue a subpoena if he's uncooperative.
President Donald Trump's eldest son released an email chain Tuesday that shows him discussing plans to hear damaging information on Hillary Clinton that were described as "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".
But those close to Manafort maintain he's done nothing wrong - in fact, they think Manafort's involvement in this whole thing is completely unlike that of Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, who was also at the meeting.
Manafort resigned from Trump's campaign on August 19, just 3 months after becoming chairman, after NYT broke news of his firm's work with Ukrainian oligarchs.
The New York Times has reported during the past several days the meeting was arranged on the premise of passing damaging information about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from the Russian government to top members of the Trump campaign.

House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed on Tuesday that the meeting between Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Manafort and Veselnitskaya is a "grave development" in the investigation of possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. However, the immigration parole expired on January 7, 2016 and she was denied an extension.
Grassley said Wednesday that he's asked the departments of Homeland Security and State how Veselnitskaya could be in the United States without registering under the foreign agents act or on a valid visa.
"This raises serious questions about whether the Obama administration authorized her to remain in the country, and if so, why?"
Trump said in Paris on Thursday that the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was a private attorney and not a Russian government lawyer, and that nothing of substance came of the meeting. "Then obviously it'd be appropriate for anybody to get into anything that went on at that meeting, since he was at that meeting".
